A proverbial 'How Not To Manage' a company. Every person is more inept than the last. Zero room for career growth.

I worked at Autonomy full-time (more than an year)

Pros

You aren't held to your ancillary metric of calls so long as you perform the actual task of sourcing meetings.
Fairly relaxed environment except when management is present.
Free breakfast Wednesday, free lunch Friday.

Cons

You cannot advance within the company and there is zero track for career growth.
Management is pompous, vindictive and petty. A company of many bads ideas.
Don't confuse motion with action.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit. There's no hope for these people. I would say accept input from your staff but that's already in place in a kind of shrewd attempt at feigning interest.

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    most of crazy behavior is gone, the people who are left are actually very nice to work with. HP is putting in place new management who care more about people and communication

    Cons

    still a long way to go, some processes still not streamlined

    I have been working at Autonomy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    None. They bought our company and destroyed it. They didn't care about customers and cared less about employees.

    The only "pro" is that HP have purchased us and everything is better. It was almost an immediate turn around in terms of message. Focus is back on customer satisfaction and it's very clear that employees are considered valuable again.

    Everything

    Cons

    I was always proud of how much my company cared about our customers and employees and then Autonomy bought us. They clearly didn't care about our customers at all. Everything was about "new license revenue". So sorry if you were already a customer.

    They treated employees like a commodity that could be replaced on a whim. It was truly a terrible few years until HP purchased us and saved us from the horrible policies and behaviour of Autonomy.
